Sally, a typist at NAAFI HQ in Famagusta, is one of 300 volunteers recruited during the 1958 State of Emergency to replace Greek-Cypriot staff after a bomb incident at RAF Nicosia. She meets Edward, a war veteran and Army Schools teacher. Trouble looms when police discover his boat has been ‘borrowed’ for gun-running. They are told to carry on as normal, but nothing is normal any more. Are the innocent truly innocent and is the primary suspect one of theirs or one of ours?

Fast-moving and entertaining, it throws light on a little piece of our history
Swallow it down like an oyster and you’ll be happy.
